GREENSBORO — A UNCG student came home to her off-campus apartment  Saturday and found a man in her closet, police said. 

"She apparently came home around her lunch break, heard a noise in her closet and found him in there," said spokesman Ron Glenn with Greensboro Police Department. 

Police charged Andrew Clyde Swofford, 30, of Greensboro with misdemeanor breaking and entering, Glenn said. 

The break-in happened at 1214 Oakland Ave. 

Glenn said the victim called her boyfriend who came over and asked the man to leave. He added that the man was not violent and he does not believe the victim and suspect know one another. 

Police arrested Swofford a block away at 1698 Spring Garden St., according to a police report. 

Swofford faces numerous other charges including failure to appear, felony breaking and entering, larceny after breaking and entering, resist, delay or obstruct a police officer, identity theft and possession of stolen goods. 

He is held in the Guilford County jail under a $26,600 bail.
